Moaning Isn't Enough Anymore: My Election Reaction

I'm so disappointed. I've cried several times today. I'm gutted for myself and my colleagues in working in education, for the disabled children that I support at work, for mental health services and the NHS in general, for my friends who are dependent on social housing and DLA...and on it goes...

I also realised this morning that I need to give myself a kick up the arse. I bitch and moan about cuts and austerity but in practical terms I do very little, except vote. I need to put my money where my mouth is (or my mouth where the money isn't HAHA). Even if it's just signing a more petitions, making sure I'm properly informed about what's going on, and actually going out and protesting. I owe that to myself, and to everyone else that the government doesn't give a shit about.

This doesn't need to be a long post because everyone's already written it, and said it better than me. Gemma's written a great post with a few good ideas for getting started.

I'm crying again. Fuck them. Moaning just isn't enough anymore.


  1. YES. So much this. Thomas and I both said today, enough with the moaning and time to take action.

  2. I know, I was really shocked. It really felt like a kick. The Tories have villainised everyone.x

  3. Thank you for your comment, lets make our voices be heard!!

  4. You can make a difference. Those who's lives will be devastated deserve to be heard and represented. And you have a talent for writing and cutting through the crap. I cried too btw. Totally gutted and disappointed in humans.

    1. It just astounds me that some people can be so selfish!

I'd love to hear what you think...
